Hello Pinoy Lomographers! Here we are again for another Pinoy Lomo Tip, and issue’s topic is “Where do we have our films scanned?”
Most of us do not develop the films, for 1, it would cost you more and 2, it’s not very manageable to store piles of pictures. So I have my films scanned too, at DIGIPRINT.
Reasons why I choose Digiprint:
♥ It’s the cheapest I’ve found. It costs P135 for the first roll and P35 on the succeeding rolls, that’s for 35mm film. The minimum number of rolls per transaction is 5, so that makes P275 per 5 rolls.
♥ They burn the pictures on a CD. They can store up to 5 rolls of film per CD. I like it because it also serves as my backup, you know when it’s digital, it’s very convenient to organize, but when it’s deleted, it’s forever gone!
♥ Free shipping. After 3-5 days. you will get your scanned films at your doorstep by LBC. NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE! It will include the canisters if you request for it. You will also get your negatives back.
♥ Any special handling /request are welcome. They can cross-process your slide films, scan in half-frame and square-frame format but I’m afraid you would have to note that on the receipt, just to make sure all is well when you get your scans.
♥ They have a lot of branches all over the metro. Their branch list is not updated though, so use it to contact them and get updated yourself. Note: Megamall branch closed.
And that’s about it. Spread the analogue love!
